Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

ESPN - Vikings waive DE James after troubled, injury-riddled career - NFL

He could provide depth to a thin position on this team maybe when fully recovered could fight for a starting job. He is only 25 and has alot of upside.

As long as we are talking Minnesota DE's, I like Darrion Scott as a football player. Not so much as a person though.

They both have character issues.

I agree he would provide good depth , if he is healthy...Redskins should work him out

I think it's pretty telling that he couldn't produce even though he played next to Pro Bowl DTs. I think it also says something that the team was willing to give up on a 25 year old former 1st rounder and they thought he had no trade value whatsoever.

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Justin Tyron will be the nickle corner, you can pencil him in already...For those who didnt see hin play in college, take my word for it he was made to be an NFL corner..I wouldnt worry so much about the corners..if Springs goes down Smoot,Torrence And J.Tyron will man the corners until Rogers is back...The corners will surprise this year...We need to make sure we have a pass rush so they wont have to hold up in coverage for so long...

Not a great 2005 first round for the Vikings with Troy Williamson and Erasmus James

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

I think that is a little harsh. Cornerbacks are the same as last year. Torrence did a good job at the end of the season. He has worked extremely hard in the offseason and I think he will be better this year. Rogers should be back at some point. I think we will be fine this year. What we need is a replacement for Springs in 2009.

4 sacks in 15 games isn't great but he was a rookie.

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

Can someone please tell us what is up with this guys injuries?
If he's injury prone, Im sure we can account for that in the contract.
Why not offer him a 2 year deal.
I thought he was a pass rushing end coming out of college?

We need some info on this guy....can someone help?
I am intrigued..

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

being a badger fan he was pretty awesome when healthy, his main prob was i don't think he ever played a full season anywhere, college or pros. I was excited when the Vikings took him, being born in Minnesota the Vikes are my familys team so i kinda pull for them (when not facing the Skins of course). But I thinks he's blown up everything in at least one of his knees, great college pass rusher though. If we picked him up would need heavy performance clauses but if can ever return to college form I'd love to have him. And on a side note yes I'm from MN, moved to Wisconsin, Love the Badgers, Redskins, Brewers,Suns and pull for the Vikes. Strange I know.

re: Updated: Redskins Trade for Vikings DE Erasmus James

I really dont know how good this guy can be but I still think we need FA help at DE.
The way I see it we can get one in one of the following ways.
Trade
Pick up an FA old guy
Pick up a FA guy with injury issues
Try to get lucky with the CFL

Yeah, this guy was supposed to be good...but he didn't put up great numbers when he was starting...so I think he is potential depth at best...but his age sure is attractive

In the 8 games he started since his rookie season he has 9 total tackles and 1 sack. I'm not saying he wouldn't be a decent depth signing, but his history of injuries and his lack of production are meaningful. Anyone who expects him to be some stud just because he's a former 1st rounder is kidding themselves.
